SIG 556-R (7.62×39) What’s the point?

Other than looking “cool” and having an ambi safety, I fail to see why this particular rifle is worth $1,250. For the Love of Mikhail! You guys didn’t even bother to switch the charging handle to the left side! Adjustable gas system for when you shoot dirty ammo? Has that been an issue with the AK since when?

For $1,250 you can buy a Century Arms WASR, deck it as you want, buy a crapload of ammo and still have enough money left to take a class with Gabe Suarez.

Next: buying a Maseratti to go off-roading in the Florida Swamps.
